ZcommeDodo Posted March 29, 2007 Share Posted March 29, 2007 Hello, I manage softwares installed in a few schools and my direction decided to give up PhotoShop for budget purpose. We now use Paint.net instead with psd plugin. A server Citrix distributes the application to light terminals. Everything works well until some students start to work with 'large files' (over 40MB). Then things got worse since the memory usage was about 1GB per instance of Paint.net ! We then thought there could be a problem with the picture : we opened it with TheGIMP, and the memory consumption was only 150MB. 1GB RAM shouldn't be a problem in a "heavy client" architecture, but we can't afford letting the Citrix server manage 30 clients using Paint.net simultaneously. I am afraid this problem is more a matter of Framework.net (and memory management) than a problem with Paint.net itself. Is there any way of making things in RAM "smaller" using Paint.net ? Thanks in advance. ZcD Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
